i just saw this film, and i think it was one of the worst movies i've ever seen. about 2/3rd of the movie was filmed at night, and it was so dark that i could barley see anything. the story was completely stupid and un-realistic and the gun fights looked like something out of the A-Team. willis and his seals were just walking in a straight line thru the jungle blasting away. i expected jessie ventura and his mini-gun to pop up at any second.
this could of been a really good film, but the writer and director just blew it. about the first hour and 45 minutes are just willis and his crew walking thru the jungle with a bunch of refugees.
if you want to watch a good military film, pop "saving private ryan" or "black hawk down" in your DVD player.
this movie is pretty much a rip-off of "three kings", which i thought was pretty good. but in "three kings", i actually was interested in the american and iraq characters, even the bad guy. but in "tears of the sun", i connected with no characters on either side. this movie should of been a straight to video clunker starring steven segal.
